5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent little reference, 19 July 2012
By 
This review is from: Objective-C Phrasebook (Developer's Library) (Paperback)
This is a book I should have bought years ago when I started learning Objective-C and Cocoa. It's an excellent little reference which manages to achieve a balance between brevity and comprehensibility, and covers most of the key aspects of the language and frameworks that you'll need on a day-to-day basis. It now sits within easy reach of my keyboard.

It's particularly good at providing quick summaries of topics that are covered in detail to the point of obscurity in the official Apple docs. Things like handling plists and file i/o turn out to be not nearly as complicated as Apple would have had me believe.

My only two criticisms are presentational - the typefaces are horrible, and not at all good choices for a book that contains a lot of code snippets; and the size and the binding means it won't sit flat if you're trying to read and type at the same time. But that doesn't detract in any way from the usefulness.
